Description and results


This project seeks to increase the Government of Ethiopia's (GoE) resilience to crises and shocks, such as the COVID-19 pandemic. This project works to strengthen Ethiopian public institutions' capacity to provide essential public services to alleviate the social and economic strain of COVID-19, including support for local businesses' recovery and low-income workers. Project activities include: (1) preparing rapid, multi-sectoral impact assessments and recovery plans; (2) supporting the design and establishment of alternate working arrangements in GoE ministries; (3) designing and implementing job retention or compensation schemes in micro, small and medium enterprises for youth, particularly women; and (4) supporting women-owned micro, small and medium enterprises and other affected groups through access to financial and business development services.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) effective continuity of critical government functions; and (2) socio-economic impacts mitigated for women-owned enterprises, their employees (formal and informal) and most affected groups.
